Leicester's newest boutique hotel is now open for bookings. St Martins House, a new high-end luxury accommodation, opened on 3rd October 2018 and completes the Cathedral Quarters offerings. 
Built by the Diocese of Leicester, St Martins Lodge stands at just a stone's throw from the site where King Richard III's remains were discovered in 2012, prior to being laid to rest inside the Cathedral three years ago. 
The accommodation is a welcome addition to the City's Cathedral Quarter, which has included the KRIII Visitor Centre and the rejuvenation of the area with visitors attracted from far and wide. 
On Maundy Thursday Her Majesty The Queen came to Leicester Cathedral to complete her Maundy Visits to English Anglican Cathedrals. The Royal Maundy Service is a tradition from Medieval times, when the Sovereign washes feet and gives alms to the poor. This is a service of the Chapel Royal, and Leicester Cathedral was hosting the event which was led by the Lord High Almoner with music that included singing from the Chapel Royal Choir.
